Default hi everyone. newbie here

so i just bought a 2013 ram 1500, 2 wheel drive, 4.7... i am wondering what simple mods can be done. i am getting a magnaflow exhaust installed in a couple days, already 3" cat back... superchips knows nothing of how to tune this model, and bully dog tells me today that they are in a beta testing phase for this motor and setup. i have noticed a significant drop in power when it shifts from(1st to second?) i believe... almost as though i were driving a stick and had to shift. the power drops out for a second then it shifts... it doesnt do it when i am full throttle and it seems pretty consistent with normal driving... i only have 1k miles on her now and the dealer told me to just ride it out for 10 or 12k ,iles... but yet i still have this mushy, cant really open up feeling when taking off from a dead stop... usuall aroun 2800-3000 rpm before it really wakes up... any suggestions? sorry for the long winded post but i need some help and i am fairly new to this. thank you in advance..

Sorry can't really help you out, but welcome to the Z and I'm sure that if you look in the 4.7 L section you'll find lots.
